In Honor of George W. Bush’s 71st Birthday, Here Are the 71 Most George-Bushiest Moments in History

Posted on


 

 

( IJR ) Our forty-third President George W. Bush turned 71 on Thursday. In his glorious 71 years of meme-worthy life, Bush has certainly created an unforgettable style and endeared himself to America and, frankly, the world, for better or worse.

The former president, who took his lumps in office, has seen a resurgence in popularity since his term ended nearly a decade ago. Websites that posted content longing for his impeachment once now publish writers who “Thank God” for his existence.

In the tradition of past Bush presidencies, W. has conducted himself as a gentleman after leaving office, being kind to his predecessors and philanthropic to the people he wished to lead. W., in his own way, is masterfully creating another legacy after his presidency: winning over critics through kindness, mediocre paintings, and ponchos.

So we give you, the 71 most W. moments in history. Enjoy.
